Pediatric Occupational Therapy
Specializing in Sensory-Friendly Haircut Support
Meredith Spoon, OTR/L
As a highly trained, licensed and registered occupational therapist, I provide home-based occupational therapy services for children 0-17 years of age, specializing in sensory-friendly haircuts. With 18-years of experience and a life-long passion for children, I work in collaboration with families and caregivers to help children develop, improve, and master skills to more efficiently and independently play, learn, and sparkle! I love to have fun in therapy! I also love to enable learning, encourage, and support families to nurture their children's "rainbow roots" so their colors shine bright for all to see!
